We are so lucky to feature Nina Nguyen, a local Colorado designer that grew up in Central Vietnam surrounded by a family of jewelers and goldsmiths. Her mother’s trading post was where locals came to sell their gold, panned from the Buon Ma Thuot River, which was then refined and used to create gorgeous pieces by Nina’s uncle. She didn't have an easy journey but one that led her to design jewelry of her own using many of the same techniques and materials as her uncle. Her line consists of mixed metals, saturated colors and organic and natural colors. She has managed to capture the latest trends and blend them with her signature style.
"Sometimes women want to mix things up a bit. Literally."
The Nina Nguyen Designs line is created to be stacked and layered in a mix-and-match style. Elements can be moved or converted from pendants to earrings to be used as a charm. The affordability, as well as the way the pieces work together, makes it easy to collect multiple pieces. Nina Nguyen’s current collection includes solid 18 karat gold, vermeil and sterling silver, as well as many in black oxidized silver. She exclusively uses recycled gold for her 18 karat gold pieces. Lots of precious gemstones are used giving the line great color.
Nina’s most popular pieces are the “necklettes,” which are long beaded styles that can be worn as a single-strand necklace, a short layered necklace, or as a wrap bracelet. These pieces pair perfectly with handmade layering chains and they stack together beautifully with her bracelets. Recently, Nina Nguyen launched a collection of interchangeable earrings and jackets. Nina expanded on the assortment of this earring system with the addition of many more gemstones and hand-hammered texture styles. Delicate stackable rings, available in 18 karat gold and sterling silver, round out the collection.
The Nina Nguyen collection is all about quality and versatility. Everyday pieces can be stacked together to create bold, dramatic looks allowing each woman to express her own sense of style.
